Saturday, 11/7/2009 3 PM - Kenny's Castaways (NYC)

WHAT: The Brixton Riot returns to perform at the 9th Annual International Pop Overthrow Festival for the 3rd consecutive year.

WHEN: Saturday, November 7th at 2 PM.


Kenny's Castaways
157 Bleecker St.
New York, NY
(212) 979-9762


WHY: Because we're huge fans of IPO and of Mr. David Bash, the man who makes it all happen. International Pop Overthrow (or IPO, as it has affectionately become known) is a pop music festival which features the best pop and rock bands from around the world. The festival takes place annually in several U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Boston, Detroit, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Chapel Hill and Minneapolis, two cities in Canada: Vancouver, British Columbia and Toronto, Ontario, as well as Liverpool, UK.

And to top it all off, we have the good fortune of sharing the stage with Lieder, one of NJ's finest and one of our personal favorite bands. If you've been to a few of our shows, odds are you've seen Lieder once or twice. They're a great band and you DON'T want to miss their set. In fact, you can't go wrong with any of the bands on this bill or on any other night at IPO. David goes to great lengths to put together cohesive lineups and find some of the best rock and power pop bands you've never heard. We'll all be there early and stay until the end. Here's the full lineup.

1:30 Kevin McAdams -
2:00 R. Stevie Moore/Lane Steinberg -
2:30 Lieder -
3:00 The Brixton Riot -
3:30 Ed Hale -
4:00 The Desperate Club -
4:30 The Intangibles -

This is our first show in three months and it's the last "planned" show for 2009. We don't expect to be adding any others before the New Year, but hey, you never know...

Is This Thing On?

Hi there,

Thanks for finding your way to our Blogger site. We created this blog as a "central spot" for posting band news, show information, photos and other media. We'll also be posting journal entries as we continue to work on our first record. Odds are that it will probably host the incoherent ramblings of one or more members at some point, most likely fueled by large quantities of alcohol.

The original concept was for this site to serve as a "media blog"; a place to post audio and video recordings of various live performances, rehearsals, cover songs and demos, and we certainly hope to do all that with this space. The other goal was to try and simplify our current method of blogging, which usually requires posting the same (or similar) information to Facebook, iLike, MySpace and ReverbNation. For now, we'll use this as the main online source of information for the band (though we will continue to post live dates to all of the other sites). It will also allow us to keep the mailing list emails brief and as infrequent as possible. Believe it or not, we do go out of our way to be non-intrusive.

So that's basically all we've got for now. In the upcoming weeks and months, look for more information on the recording of LP #1, free mp3 downloads, information on upcoming shows and general news items.

That's all for now.
